Wyoming Might Outlaw Renewable Energy

Wyoming's Lawmakers Might Outlaw Renewable Energy
By Lorraine Chow | EcoWatch (02/18/2017)
"Republican lawmakers in Wyoming have introduced a bill that would block the use of renewable energy in the state. If passed, utilities that use wind or solar to produce power for Wyoming residents would be penalized with a costly fine of $10-per-megawatt-hour...

Wyoming is by far the nation's largest coal producer and a major producer of natural gas and crude oil... Wyoming is the only state in the country that taxes wind energy production..."

Damn good thing they aren't "the nation's largest" producers of horse buggies and muzzle loaders for the military.
